For 2020, Blue Foundation will be hosting Blue Knot Day as a virtual festival event, with new ideas and events shared each hour in the digital space. If you would still like to host a physical event we have resources to help make your day a success. Simply follow these step by step instructions.
You must complete the registration below if you would like to fundraise or hold an event on behalf of Blue Knot Foundation and Blue Knot Day.
Choose the type of activity or event you would like to host.
Once you have chosen your event, you need to register online (at the bottom of this page). Please allow up to 1 week for us to get back to you. All events must be registered when using our brand and collecting money or raising money on our behalf. Events must also be approved prior to their start and any changes to the approved event must be notified in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 14 days before the event starts. Please note that all events are to be conducted by an adult unless written permission has been provided by a parent or guardian to host the event. Please forward appropriate permission to email@example.com. Once your event is approved, you will receive a letter of confirmation and in the case of a fundraising event, an Authority to Fundraise letter. We also ask that you review and follow the guidelines which are contained within the Event and Fundraising Kit.
If you would like to raise funds, you can either set up a fundraising page at everydayhero.com.au or justgiving.com and select Blue Knot Foundation as your charity of choice, or fundraise following the requirements as specified in the Event and Fundraising Kit. It’s a great idea to set a target and have something to aim for.
Send out invitations and create awareness around your event. Get everyone involved! You may also like to purchase some merchandise like blue knot bracelets which can be found here
If you would like to theme your event, we have some great resources which we’ve created and can be downloaded from our website, or copied from the Event and Fundraising Kit.
Spread the word on social media and ask people to share with their networks. In the lead up and on the day, let people know what you are doing and what your goal is.
Enjoy the day and thank everyone who donated, contributed or sponsored your activity.
If you have collected funds directly (not through the recommended platforms) please deposit funds as outlined in the Event and Fundraising Kit. We have also created a remittance form which makes this easier.
